  • Beautiful ruins of Genoa fortress tower over the fortified in ancient times, the Bay. The remains of towers and walls are pretty high and very impressive even if you look at them from afar, where you only see the Hill and hidden Bay itself.

  • Went there 2 times. Raised for the first time at night and listened to at an altitude and in complete darkness cry of seagulls and admired the small fishing boats in the night sea. The second time was at dawn. The place is fascinating. It directly breathes history.

  • The Crimean sights can be reached in several ways. First to arrive at the bus station of Sevastopol. From there go taxi, trolley buses and minibuses. Hop on a trolley bus No. 17 or any bus which goes to the station "5 km". From there take the transport that travels to Balaklava. Most often, this 9th minibus. Just 15 minutes and you are spot on. The fortress itself is virtually destroyed and represents a separate Tower elements. But views of the Balaklava Bay-unforgettable! So much open space, fresh sea breeze and water surface I met not long ago!
